I used a holly stamp produced by my bloggy friend, the mega-talented
Chris Dark which was inked up with Olympia Green Versafine. I cut out the individual leaves shaped them with a ball tool and applied the merest hint of Stickles to a few leaves. Next I punched out a few red circles and applied Glossy Accents for the berries and once dry arranged the lot in the corner of the panel. The red sentiment is by SU. When I had the idea for this card there were no similar entries but whilst waiting for the G.A. to dry, another holly card appeared with a similar layout. What is it they say about great minds..? I'm also linking to Creative Inspirations where the theme is Traditional Christmas Colours.
A couple of you know that I had a mini-makeover last week when I used a beauty voucher given to me by my colleagues for my birthday in the summer. I had a French manicure and individual falsh lashes applied. I did briefly wonder if I was a bit too long in the tooth at 50 for such fripperies as lashes but then I thought 'nah, bollocks', but when I saw the results I did feel like this for a little while.
Don't think I will be having them again as they normally cost sixty quid a go and I had to lie still for two and a half hours, but almost a week on I quite like them and there's no need for mascara.
(not brave enough to let you see any more, sans make-up)
And how about my posh digits, they never look like this normally!
I've an action packed day ahead of me involving ink, card, double sided tape
and a trip to the vet's as Prudy's jabs are due.
